From November 9 to 13, paradise will be captivated by glamour and talent in this film festival, which has become one of the most important in Mexico, as well as in the USA and Canada. These countries have exhibited their fresh and new talents in cinema for the last five years. At the same time, the festival has also promoted the tourist and cultural activities of Baja California Sur, the host state.

Los Cabos International Film Festival’s aim is to positively contribute to the growth of film culture, exhibiting the best in Mexican and Latin American talent to the international market, through a carefully curated film program, accompanied by an industry platform spearheaded by Los Cabos- Meet MART.

This 5th edition has been letting us into more and more detail as the year has gone by. For example, the official selection line-up and events like American Specials and World Highlights, with releases such as Woody Allen’s Café Society, Ewan McGregor’s American Pastoral, in his directorial debut, and Garth Davis’ Lion, amongst many more. However, the most expected highlight is the premiere of “Jackie”, a film by Chilean director Pablo Larraín, starred by Oscar-winning actress Natalie Portman, who, after the trailer’s release and according to film critics, is again lining up to be a nominee to obtain the coveted statuette.  


Just recently, it was also revealed that Mexican singer Natalia Lafourcade will release her documentary Hasta la Raíz (To the Root), directed by Bruno Bancalari and Juan Pablo López-Fonseca, which portrays the process involved in the production of her fifth album, and she will also give a concert during the festival to celebrate her documentary’s world premiere.
